Castagna Milano Teases ‘Mono-Door’ Porsche Panamera Vistotal Coupe Projects

Unless you’re a Lamborghini aficionado or a total classic car buff, you probably don’t know much about the Marzal concept, unveiled by the Italian brand at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show.

What made the Marzal special was its amply glazed gull-wing doors, which allowed for easy entry into the cabin, as well as excellent all-round visibility. It’s those doors that served as inspiration for this Porsche Panamera Vistotal by Castagna Milano.

The Italian coachbuilder has just released these teaser images showing how the regular Panamera, as well the Sport Turismo version look like with massive carbon fiber gull-wing doors.

Luxury overload

It’s a very distinguished look, that’s for sure. And as far as we can tell, the latch mechanism is positioned somewhere in the middle of the door and flush with the surface, while the handle itself comes out automatically when touched. The Atelier also states that the opening and closing of the door can be done automatically – from up close as well as remotely.

The door also features a two-tone aesthetic that blends in with the air outlet, featuring a special iridescent paint.

Dubbed Vistotal, this mod can be applied to both versions of the four-door Porsche, with customers also able to choose bespoke interior designs with special materials and unique finishes.

In the end, it took 2 years of planning and “a few months of work” for Castagna to have a car ready, based on a Panamera 4 E-Hybrid model.

    Didn’t Porsche just announced a two-door Panamera a few days ago?

      Announce? Not quite. They (Porsche Design Chief) said that they’re doable and that “it is not [his] role to consider such things.”

      How do you ‘just’ announce something…2 years ago???
      Lol

        Porsche themselves, not Castagna.

  • Stephen G

    Which is it a “Mono-Door” or does it have “massive carbon fiber DOORS”?

  • donald seymour

    The most stupid idea that I’ve ever seen. Do they realise how big the actual door is? I can understand a coupe, but not a four door saloon.
